    Default Hello! 14 year old, Malaysian

    Hello there. I'm Maxis from Malaysia, living at Port Dickson. As the title says, I'm 14 years old, been playing badminton for a while as a kid but not as serious as I am now. I am training under a coach called Kwek Chiew Peng, he was a former Thomas Cupper for Malaysia.

    I wish to improve to a higher level, hopefully I can be better. I decided to train with a coach after losing to a 13 year old when playing in my school's inter-school competition.

    Just a few thoughts I wish to share:

    1.Compared to others, I started out pretty late as you can see ( 14 years old ). I always have another side of me where I doubt I can be better than others. Every professional player started playing badminton very early ( 6-8 years old ). It always bothers me when thinking about this...

    2.When using the forehand grip, I find it hard to do a forehand clear when the shuttle is in front of me. Maybe I'm not used to it, but whenever I try to do a clear I tend to switch back to my old grip ( panhandle grip )... it's a habit and It's hard to get used to the forehand grip.

    Thank you for your time and I hope you can answer my questions.

    Regards,

    A boy with a dream.

    Maxis.

    Starting at 14 years old is perfectly fine. If anything starting competitive physical activity at an early young age can be good and bad. Like weight lifting at a young age is extremely bad. I was introduced to badminton until 16, didn't get serious until 19. As long you find someone just as serious as you are or even more, you play with them. But you can really tell if someone is very serious about winning in badminton. Its not just about on court performance but also off-court. Like watching videos or go to gym and shape your muscles. Something to improve yourself when not playing badminton.

    Thank you guys. I'll follow your advice.

    tckang : My name is really Maxis. It's on my birth cert, haha. I know it's kind of weird but sometimes people tend to get confused when they see my name during school periods.
